 Morning June 19__Spurgeon

The blessings of this day would be rich
if all of us were filled with the Holy
Spirit. It would be impossible to over
estimate the consequences of this sacred
filling of the soul. Life, comfort, light,
purity, power, peace, and many other
precious blessings are inseparable from
the Spirit's benign presence.
As sacred oil, He anoints the head of the
believer; sets him apart to the priesthood
of saints, and gives him grace to execute
his office correctly. As the only truly
purifying water, He cleanses us from the
power of sin and sanctifies us to holiness,
working in us to will and to act according
to His good purpose. As the light, He
manifested to us first our lost condition;
now He reveals the Lord Jesus to us and in
us, and guides us in the way of righteous-
ness. Enlightened by His pure celestial ray,
we are no more darkness but light in the
Lord. As fire, He both purges us from dross,
and sets our consecrated nature on fire. He
is the sacrificial flame by which we are
enabled to offer our whole souls as a living
sacrifice to God. As heavenly dew, He removes
our barrenness and fertilizes our lives.
O, that He would descend on us from above at
this early hour! Such morning dew would be a
sweet commencement for the day. As the dove,
with wings of peaceful love; He broods over
His church and over the souls of believers,
and as the Comforter He dispels the cares
and doubts that mar the peace of His beloved.
He descends upon the chosen as upon the Lord
in the Jordan, and bears witness to their
sonship by working in them a filial spirit
by which they cry Abba, Father. As the wind,
He brings the breath of life to humankind;
blowing where He chooses, He performs the
live-giving operations by which the spiritual
creation is quickened and sustained.
Would to God that we might feel His presence
this day and every day~!~
